8:20 pm
be surprised to learn. >> i tell you, las vegas has become a city of integrated resorts where there are so many amenities that a single property is offering, so we've coined the term, i plagiarized it from singapore, we call singapore property an integrated resort so we have everything here, exhibition space, convention space, we have show rooms, we have four show rooms in this property. one, two, three, four, four. i had to use my fingers. it's become a series of strip of integrated resorts and focus more on the convention market and group market than on the former casino sentri centricity of the way that las vegas was operated. when las vegas was first started it legitimized therefore, illegitimate business and we all know the story about bugsy segal and the movie and what have you so they legitimized casinos, gambling.
8:21 pm
today we don't call it gambling anymore, today we call it gaming, because confused with my 13-year-old kid who plays gams on the tv what do they call it, playstation or something, xbox. course i don't know how to turn that on. a little too technical for me. actually, i'm led to believe that we have something to do with it. >> mike: but you had an idea, a number of years ago. you were the one of the visionaries to see las vegas not just as a place for gaming, but a place for conventions and conferences. >> right. >> mike: and thats with a the nt kind of vegas. >> well, it took away-- it segued from focus on and concentration on casinos only, to today, the las vegas convention authority recently pulled a survey that said that only 14% of the people who come to las vegas come for the purpose of gambling.
8:22 pm
>> 14%. >> that would be shocking to most people. >> when i run across people all over the world they say i have never come to las vegas and i say how come. because i don't gamble. besides the locals-- >> are here in las vegas, for something other than gaming. >> mike: well, you know, i was saying at the beginning of the show, i don't gamble, but vegas is an incredibly fun place to come. in walking distance of wherever you stay be you can see the most phenomenal shows in the world in one city. >> all offense the place. >> mike: and in a relatively concentrated area. just incredible. live entertainment is unsurpassed here in every kind of way and we have-- we have a concentrate. >> first of all, la las vegas is great for groups. the best for groups because it's the most cost efficient and it's the most-- it has the greatest infrastructure. leak our property here we have 330 reading rooms. it's the largest meeting

8:24 pm
world. most don't have 40,000 rooms except maybe orlando, new york, i'm not even sure about new york and whatever. so, it's very-- maybe paris. it's-- it has the basic infrastructure for groups, it has the service attitude that other people don't have and of course, this is the only hotel on the strip that's nonunion. nonunion. >> woo, woo! . . >> and service personnel. one i think this that impresses me, i think that this city has the greatest concentration of people in the hospitality business who understand service. >> right. >> mike: from drivers to food servers, every person that i encounter in any of the properties, i am amazed at how helpful, friendly, courteous and grateful they are for the business and i think that means something. >> well, aren't you saying only at the venetian and pa
8:25 pm
lazzo. >> mike: especially, especially at the venetian. >> and because we're nonunion. and so people get-- >> they lost last night, that's what happened. >> that happens to the best of us. but actually, when employees get rewarded based upon-- and get promoted not based upon just your seniority, they get rewarded based upon the merit, the kind of job they do, i hear-- i'm not plugging us, but i am plugging us. i don't mean to, but i can't help it you know, it's a natural thing. >> mike: well-- >> our employees here, that people tell me that our employees are the nicest, most helpful courteous of employees in all of las vegas. >> mike: they've been wonderful to us. it's been a privilege and joy for us to be here. and i'm going to say thank you
